About Booker T. Washington High School, Memphis, TN

Clay Street School originated in 1873 and was the first all brick building for “the colored of Memphis”.  Black citizens succeeded in staffing the entire school with black teachers.  Soon afterward, Clay School was renamed Kortrecht Grammar School, and then Kortrecht High School in 1891.  The first Memphis Black High School class graduated in 1891.

In 1911 the Memphis Board of Education decided that a new school was needed to replace the old and inadequate Kortrecht High School. At this time Kortrecht was the city’s only Black public high school.  Thus every Black graduate in Memphis was an alumnus of Kortrecht school.  In 1926 Kortrecht High school became Booker T. Washington in another new building.

Booker T. Washington now Middle and High School is a public secondary school located in South Memphis. Part of the Shelby County Schools district, it serves grades 6-12. BTW’s mission is for students to become equipped with the intellectual, technological and social skills that will allow them to exceed the expectations of state and national standards.  The school gained national attention when U.S. President, Barack Obama delivered the school’s 2011 commencement address as a reward for winning the 2011 Race to the Top Commencement Challenge.  Notable alumni include WREG news anchor Claudia Barr, Earth, Wind & Fire member, Maurice White, Willie Gregory of Nike, TN, Fred Jones, founder of The Southern Heritage Classic and the late Dr. Benjamin L. Hooks.
